Hey /gd/,
This is a tattoo design that I had a tattoo artist do for me a couple of years back. Since it was supposed to be my first one, I kinda sorta pussied out. Now, I want to try again, but the design seems....incomplete to me. I don't really know what it is, but it bugs me. If any of you have any suggestions or are able to so variations on this I would really appreciate the point of view.

Sup guys. I'm making the logo for a local post-rock'ish / math-rock'ish band. Most of these tend to use very humble / frugal aesthetics. (sigur ros being probably the closest famous reference?)

That said, after various hours of work (and a plethora of designs) I've boiled it down to one of these two. What do you guys think, which looks better / more functional to you guys?

My biggest gripe with left one is it being (possibly) too plain for t-shirts, hence why I put an image of them on a shirt. The one on the right looks quite nice on a shirt,...

you should strive for perfection no matter what you make also challenge yourself (try something new and get out of your comfort zone for example). i liked the first pic but even that one could need some work on the final details. if you work your ass out not only you might end up with a better understanding of better conscious design choices and a faster idea-visualization and production but also a feasible digital library of works that could come in handy in the near future. gl.

What do you think about this logo lads?
6 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Too complicated. Consider that the logotype should be able to be scaled up to the size of a building without loosing too much content and be small enough that you still can see the details on the side of a pencil.

The font on its own would make for a better logo in your case. You just got too much going on. An emblem/egg thingie around the whole thing. With a face, and a cake, and a text. It's too much.

I strongly suggest you read Logo Design Love before attempting making logos.

It's complicated simplicity. I absolutely despise this kind of work. It's nothing more than trying to get away with lazy work.

So, long story short: I somehow really got preoccupied with recreating the authentic VHS tape look. Not chromatic aberration or "just shift channels", but the actual affect based on the way VCRs worked, because 99% of people got it all wrong. I do it out of pure enthusiasm. I'm not interested in various shortcuts like "just download this plugin" because they all look wrong to me, I'm interested in near-perfect emulation of the tape look just for the sake of it.

I read up on NTSC, YIQ/YUV, read up on VCRs, watched lots of VHS footage and...

Not really.
Emulating VHS properly is hard as fuck (you can try twitch or whatever plugin but it doesn't feel allright).
I think the go-to method isn't about recreating it but about doing so.

Not OP but this is quite hard to control before you start getting color dropouts or even brightness shifts which are very annoying and make it hard to watch.

Not to mention you will be getting same artifacts with every new batch of passes. So that might turn boring fast. The variety of artifacting is probably related to old worn out or damaged tapes, faulty vcr mechanics. NTSC tapes also have less detail than PAL ones.

6 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
bumpp, it's in 2 days now
I'm sure the exchange program isn't compulsory, it's likely to be an option you can take in second year. You can stay on there for the second semester, or you transfer to another country as part of the erasmus scheme. If it is, be thankful. The UK has some great design courses, I'm on one. Besides, statically speaking you're more likely to die going to the corner shop than on an aircraft.
Are you on an exchange program too? How many people per room is it? And I'm trying not to opt out of it if possible. Like I'm scared as fuck but I don't want to keep running etc

Hello /gd/ first time posting here as /g/ recommended you guys.

I'm a former graphic designer gone programmer (mostly embedded electronics) and I would like to create a personal website to log my work, share a little about myself, and put things that shouldn't clutter up my resume.

I'm decent with software development but I was wondering if any of you could lend any design inspiration for personal websites. I would probably go with darker tones, and very minimal yet functional.

Check out wordpress themes focused on personal portfolios, maybe even themes designed for agencies. There are so many bloggers nowadays that you'll likely find at least 10 'best 50 portfolio themes' rankings in a minute. Great for inspiration.

Are you planning on developing the website yourself?
yes although I'm not sure how I feel about using wordpress.

I know some jobs demand wp experience, and its probably really useful - but I was going to build my backend from scratch for this. In either case I could still take inspiration from some wp themes however.

I am building everything myself. I have been learning full stack development for more advanced projects than this but I have yet to establish my online presence in the form of a portfolio. I feel its best to stop and do that before continuing...

Well, a big advantage of wordpress is how easy it is to add content. You're limited to what the theme creator designed (although with some freedom) but for something as simple as a personal portfolio I would highly recommend it. Mobile ready, plugin friendly, dynamic, ease of use, these themes were designed precisely for people like you.

Showing your skill in developing websites yourself would be more interesting for highly specific requests. No client will pay you to code something thousands of people have...

My 2 cents:

Are the red squiggle lights coming from the character? If so, make them larger the closer they are to the character. Right now it looks like it's coming from further back in the city. The Character looks very out of place and rigid, and the blurring of it doesn't suggest movement to me.
Also I looked at the top left corner first because it has the most contrast and I doubt that that is what you wanted the focal point to be.

first there's too much triangles going on. the ears should be smaller, the perspectve s mess up. the mouth shold be smaller. don't add shadows until you have the basic shape. also the stroke makes it look generic. try researchng for a fox in that pose and use it as reference.
thank you
I'm feeling this fox thugger!

Tweak it's right ear- looks like it's fused to the back of the head instead of the top

Thin the mouth so it looks slightly opened

Move the jaw shadow towards the right a bit- rn it looks like the jaw goes through the neck, but it does shows the presence of its snout so you figure that out

And just angle the right eye better

I really like it. Simple geometry looks nice as a more distinguished+slight vague object
